MILKY WaY and hERCULEaN TaSKS
Out upon you ...
then revved up his space-ship
And let the hand-brake off
Creaming up the astral waves
And sliding down the trough.
said Ken, exulting,
"Upon my heart and soul,
I've made it out the other side
Of that darned big black hole!"
never more go back there,
For, coming into view,
Are erstwhile unknown galaxies,
Fresh fields and pastures new."
fields and pastures are no doubt
The good old milky way
So setting down the runabout
Created quite a spray
GET RID OF THAT ANIMORPH! (BARBIE'S JEALOUS)
'heard' a telepathic call
The cat was wanting out
Ken pretended he would wait
She lapped it up no doubt
ALONE AT LAST (but where is Astropup?)
grabbed the throttle then
Reversing their splash down
The ship took off without the cat
Did Barbie paint the town!
He's hiding, if you please.
Pup, the space wise stowaway
was keeping a low profile.
He didn't want to press his luck.
A jealous queen can be vile.
stuck out a paw
And grabbed the floating cat
He sneaked her back aboard the ship
What will Barbie do about that!!
Can things get any worse?
furry, telepathic gallibooette
wished she had been left adrift,
preferring to take a chance with space pirates
than to get a Martian Queen miffed.
warmed up milk is curdling now
and spawning moons like nuts
Green cheese alert throughout all space
You wacky astronuts
anybody summon us
an influence divine
For just a minor miracle
I'd like my cheese with wine
Nuts In Space
saw those cheesy moons and thought
"I wonder if Astro-pup
Could scoop one up just like the cat-
I could do with an astro-nut"
WINE AND CHEESE
is the sort of girl
To w(h)inge and well, yes, w(h)ine
An earful each, of her hub-bub (bly)
With cheese, will be devine
Wine and Cheese
Astro Pup obliged again
A light-year's supply of cheese
Barbie's floating full of wine
She's fallen to her knees
"Oh Ken, you gorgeous thing!"
..giggled Barbie with her wine..
"I knew you wouldn't leave me..
..I knew everything would be just fine!"
Do you really, really, really, really, really love me?
Ken was much impressed
with this yellow clinging vine.
To put her to the test,
he felt that it was time.
What is the first task ?
So, just like Hercules of old
Barbie had tasks to do
To prove to Ken that yes, indeed
Her love for him was true
If I remember Herc correct
There's something about pillers
I don't know if they were of foam
Or them old feather fillers
Barbie's First Herculean Task To Prove Her Love
It wasn't Hercules who knocked
Those pillars down at all
But quite another strongman who
Was Sampson, I recall
It doesn't mean that Ken can't
Set Barbie such a task
"Toss some pillows" Ken could say
For a pillow fight, he'd ask
There will be lots and lots of fun
When feathers start to fly
And after all the dust settles
..."Tidy this pigsty!"
Task 3, Tether Astropup
Astropup got in the act
Chasing flying feathers
"Another task, control that pup!
Make sure that he's in tethers!"
that crazy Astropup?
This task will take it's toll
Barbie's got her work cut out
But she's no paper doll
Call the Astrovet
She trapped old Astropuppy
In a great big Astronet
He got so tangled that she had
To call the local Astrovet
Kaye Nine-a, Astrovet, at your service!
(Have rocket pack, will travel)
I've seen some strange sites in this job
Nothing I can't unravel
Kaye Nine-a got the scissors out
The pup trembled with fear
Don't cut it off, my precious parts
The bits that I hold dear!
Getting that dog under control
Poor puppy, he is in a bind
He's all tangled in his mind
The Astrovet won't cut him up
If he behaves..."SIT, Astropup!"
god of dogs appears
A blinding bark of light
A wave of paw and ties that bind
No longer bind so tight
is awed of course
And bows in dogged wonder
D-O-G does maths in morse
And divides himself asunder

"Tis odd indeed" thought Astro pup
Deeohgee should apear to me
Perhaps we've finally gone across
The universal boundary
We've been off a long time now
Must be a year, or maybe seven
Perhaps we've finally flown to
The place that's known as doggy heaven
Meanwhile back to the Barbie Queen,
whose attempts to snare Ken are going full steam.
She passed every test he put her through,
then said to Ken, "now I've one for you."
Barb's been reading woman's day
She got the test from there
No matter what respondents say
They're in the doo doo square
Old Ken will say,"The questions came,
It seemed from high above me.
I answered with a heart so true."
She wailed, "you don't love me."
Barbie was sick deep down in her heart
Would have cried if she had been human
But alien queens never make any scenes
Made up her mind and her face to look bloomin'
Ken noticed she was silent now
and although his love was true
He figured he'd done something wrong
but what, he had no clue.
